STORAGE FEE for Cord Blood & Tissue


for Cord Blood & Tissue

At CELVI, the storage fee is payable only once a year on a Pay as you Go basis, for only R460/year.

Annual payment for storage ensures that we can look after your baby’s preserved stem cells for years to come.  It is done on a pay as you go basis, which means that you pay for a year in advance and that you are not locked into a long-term contract. You can choose for how long you want to continue storage.  We will send you a reminder every year so that you don’t have to worry about it.  The storage fee for the 1st year is included in the Banking fee and the next payment will only be due the next year in your baby’s birth month.

The treating doctor will determine the use of cord blood for treatment, depending on many factors, including the patient’s medical condition, the quality of the cord blood sample, if the patient’s own cord blood can be used or an adequately matched donor’s cord blood.The use of cord blood has been established in stem cell transplantation and has been used to treat more than 80 diseases. The use of cord blood in regenerative medicine is still being researched and there is no guarantee that treatments being studied in the laboratory, clinical trials, or other experimental treatments will be available in the future.The use of cord tissue stem cells is still in early research stages, and there is no guarantee that treatments using cord tissue stem cells will be available in the future. Cord tissue stem cells are found in the cord tissue which is stored whole. Additional processing will be required to isolate the stem cells from the tissue for use. CELVI (Pty) Ltd outsources all cord blood and tissue processing and storage activities to Next Biosciences in Midrand, South Africa, a licensed and AABB accredited facility.
